Sharps Disposal Services
Once medical procedures are completed, the utilization of medical sharps transforms them into hazardous waste, presenting a substantial danger. Improper handling of contaminated medical sharps can result in the transmission of infectious agents such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or Hepatitis B (HBV). It is of utmost importance to exercise care when dealing with medical sharps and guarantee their proper disposal to avert accidents and safeguard the well-being of individuals and the environment. This imperative extends to various environments, including commercial establishments and residential areas, underscoring the significance of secure handling and appropriate disposal procedures.

These containers should include a clearly marked line indicating their safe capacity and must be capable of securely sealing shut.
Convenient access to approved sharps containers is available through online retailers and select pharmacies.
